Merle Haggard Life Of A Rodeo Cowboy Lyrics

Last updated: 02/24/2005 10:00:00 AM

Well it really has been nice bein' with you but I'm afraid that I've got to leave
As you know I'm a rodeo cowboy and there's a rodeo down in Mesquite
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy breakin' broncs or gettin' broke
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy and that's the only life I know

On the day you think your day is the big one
I'm walkin' away with all that they own
Then your lyin' hurtin' hearin' someone saying
Give him a hand that's all that cowboy is taking home
Hot beer and cold stale hamburgers makes a meal sorta hard to enjoy
And it kinda makes you think of momma's chicken
Ah that's the life of a rodeo cowboy
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy...
[ guitar - dobro ]
When your down and your really feeling sorry well you go for a drink in some bar
Then someone points at you and you hear him whisper over there stands a rodeo star
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy...
That's the life of a rodeo cowboy...
